about crazy daisies

Crazy Daisy seeds are an excellent wild flower to grow. Formerly Chrysanthemum maximum, or Shasta Daisy, no sunny border would seem complete without the familiar presence of a daisy flower. Crazy Daisy is a unique strain, featuring flowers with very finely-cut or fringed petals surrounding a golden centre. Also excellent in tubs or mixed containers. Flowers are ideal for cutting.

in the records

In old english, daisies were referred to as ‘day’s eye’ because at night the petals close over the yellow centre and during the day they re-open. The phrase ‘as fresh as a daisy’ came from this idea - that someone had a good night’s rest.
